Well I showed up a little before 10:00 and parked at the tennis courts, I was armed with a straight shaft weed eater and brush blade... but no one else was there so I got out and walked the course as it stands. Some very interesting holes!

Came back and sat around for a bit but no one was there, so drove by the course and saw some people playing but no one that looked like workers, so I went back to the spot and waited it out until about 10:15... Called Scorekeeper per request and did not get an answer. A bit frustrating considering this is my second time to come help and no one was there.

The Facebook times and the forum times also do not match up, I think it would be helpful to coordinate both of these to reduce confusion. I see so many "These things don't happen by themselves" and "You should feel guilty" posts, which may be just poking fun, but they are not entirely encouraging. I wish not to throw stones as I know many here have given so much for the sport and the community here in STL... Maybe it is just a coincidence I have shown on two bad days?

And now that I have exposed my Type A personality traits haha, I would like to make an offer. I can not help this coming Sunday 9/29 due to an appointment I have at 10:30 AM. Post the correct time and correct meeting place here and on Facebook I will bring some Old Town Donuts and some Bagels to the work day Sunday for some energizing carbs for the workers... This will be my third time making a commute to the course, so if I am fooled again shame on me...

Sorry for the miscommunication Between this thread and the Facebook page I have nothing to do with facebook
I Francis Albanese 314 330 0045 was playing disc golf today before We All worked
Don't get good reception on the cell phones at Sioux
As for where we all meet ,it is at the tennis court area parking lot
The work is taking place just east of the tennis courts in the woods
Please understand I am the one who has tried to keep this course on track for completion
and others are posting times that I can not always manage.
If you call me Before you head out ,say around 830 I will be able to answer my phone , and We can confirm the work day location, so your next trip to the park won't be a let down to any of us,
Again Sorry for your lost time , and hope to see you soon
Also thank you for your determination to assist our club in the completion of this course

:ugeek: :D :) OUT !

I'll be working at SP2 again this evening around 4. We finished hole 11 and 80% of 12. Found a yellow jacket stronghold and got stung 4 times. Thought it best to quit for the day and left at 6p. Any help is appreciated to get this course ready for the CC. Please choose to volunteer.
Phone reception is bad at SP. If you think you are coming, call by 3p, 314-583-3340. Cars may or may not be parked at the tennis courts. A lot of us are driving to hole 11 to unload our gear. I suggest first timers park at the tennis courts. Walk along the right side (paved) of the courts and into the forest beyond (south). There is a path from 9 to 10's tee, turn right. Follow 10's fairway and take the path at the end to 11. Turn left and follow 11 to the path towards 12. You can also listen for the brushcutter and follow the noise. Thanks in advance, Chris K

Well I guess you should all read it from me .
The new course will not be used for the C. C.
Sorry if that is a let down to anyone BUT We tried to get it done with your help.
So after the C. C. We will be working on this course to get it ready for concrete pads, signs,and baskets
Then We all can play this great course
The C. C. will be your last shot at the temp. course at Sioux Passage Because once we get this New course in there will be no need to set up the temp any more

I'll there again today around 1:00. Course is shaping up. Cut 60% of hole 13 on Wednesday. Had a good crew dragging brush off the fairway. 13 is the last hole to completely cut out of the woods. With another good crew today, Monday and Wednesday; Francis may be compelled to let us play the course at the Club Championships:)
